Hand forging is one of the oldest known metalworking processes, involving heating metal and rapidly cooling to soften it before hardening again by hammering or beating it into shape. The forging process produces unique pieces that are stronger and more scratch-resistant than jewelry created using more common cast or machine methods.
MUNDI Jewelry is forged by hand by Edmundo de Marchena in San Francisco. Each piece is crafted individually and has the stamp of his design and hammer. The combination of design with traditional craftsmanship results in timeless, one-of-a-kind creations.
